Chase JA Finance Park
For 2020-21 we are excited to introduce a virtual option of JA Finance Park! JA Finance Park Virtual helps students build a foundation upon which they can make intelligent financial decisions that last a lifetime, including decisions related to income, expenses, savings, and credit. The virtual program includes curriculum and a simulation, both accessible online and flexible for in-class or remote learning. The curriculum is easy to implement, and can be teacher led or student self-driven. The online simulation with modern graphics allows students to create a budget with multiple expense categories.
In Chase JA Finance Park, middle and high school students are placed into ordinary real-life situations and equipped with the guidance and resources to establish and run a successful household. Students are assigned a profile which includes details about their family, job, and background, then will create and adhere to a personal financial budget. The classroom curriculum culminates in a hands-on tablet based (paperless) budgeting simulation at Chase JA Finance Park.
